Party”, ’’The First Continental Congress.”
Almost all the grade is taking part.

Act”; Edwin Shockley,”The Boston Tea
Party”; Barbara Zoellner, ”The First
Continental Congress.” These plays are
being given in the room.
THE FOURTH GRADE
The Fourth Grade has been studying
about the different ways of traveling.
We collected and drew pictures of the
old and the new means of transportation.
Vie all liked the story ”The Taxicab
lYent Mad. ”
The Fourth Grade’s multiplication
contest has helped us to learn our mul
tiplication combinations and this has
made our arithmetic easier. Seventeen
of us can give the combinations with
out a mistake.
THE THIRD GRADE
The Third Grade is proud of Johnny
Crunkleton, because he was the fi3:^st
one in the room to get a Dent-o-ploma
